When I saw your post, it reminded me of a program on Hawaii I saw many years ago.
I was pretty sure that it was a fish but couldn't remember how it was spelt so googled it. :-)

Carlos was going for Jane Goodall. She worked with chimpanzees. She came to a bad end when she was murdered. The death is still unsolved. She was buried with her chimpanzees in a cemetery she made for them.

Some crazy stuff about the use of syrup in our processed foods and deserts:


The Untold Truth Of High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)
wrote:
... Another reason HFCS is singled out for increasing obesity levels is that fructose makes you hungry...



And... Even better/worse depending on who is profiting vs who is eating: HFCS is cheaper than the more 'healthy' regular cane sugar...


All in our deadly greedy world!

Time for a reminder I think.

Read and follow rules:

-Only one word per post
-No comments or ~
-The word has to be linked to the word of the previous poster
-You cannot post 2 times in a row
-The two words need to link in Google at least
-A hyphen is allowed if the word makes sense in its entirety, but must not be used to link proper names (e.g. "Miss-Piggy" is not allowed, but either "miss" or "piggy" would be, but "misspiggy" would not)
-One letter words are allowed (you can't actually post a one letter word but it will work when you put a punctuation mark behind it (or just a space:)
-Abbreviations are allowed (but must be a word in its own right)
-Acronyms are not allowed
-Punctuation marks are not allowed
-Digits only are not allowed
-Pictures and quoting are not allowed.
-Hyperlinks are not allowed
